We propose a channel-allocation and scheduling protocol for underwater acoustic cellular networks. The protocol exploits both the acoustic path loss and the long propagation delay of the underwater channel to enable efficient use of system resources. By scheduling co-channel transmissions to avoid strong interference, it allows grouping of the cells into small clusters, thus achieving higher efficiency than a conventional scheme based on spatial frequency (or code) reuse alone.
