Abstract: Underwater Sensor Network (UWSN) performs the functionality of data transmission through wireless mobile nodes in the aquatic environment. But, due to the harsh and uneven nature of the aquatic environment, the operation of the UWSN is effected badly as no time synchronization between nodes, In this paper, we propose to develop a Cluster based Time Synchronization Algorithm for Mobile UWSN. This algorithm aims at synchronizing the time between the network nodes by performing inter cluster as well as intra cluster synchronization. In this way, once the nodes are time synchronized, the network operation will be carried out smoothly, in turn consuming lesser energy to perform the network functionality.
