Underwater Wireless Sensor Networks (UWSNs) are extremely significant in running every type of duties underwater. Dependable and effective communication among sensor nodes is extremely stimulating. Initially, since radio waves can’t function fine in such atmosphere, so we utilize acoustic communication. Secondly, acoustic communication is extremely slower compared to radio communication. Furthermore, atmosphere is extremely dynamic, that transforms topology of network. Because of these motives information can’t spread to destination timely or dependably. This generates necessity of method that can advance functioning of network in terms of dependability and quantity. Cooperation among nodules is one of main methods that can significantly improve dependability of network at price of extra energy ingesting. In this paper, we are focusing on ACE (Adaptive Cooperative Retransmission in EEDBR) Protocol and EACE (Enhanced Adaptive Cooperative Retransmission in EEDBR) protocols for improving the functioning regarding network lifetime, energy efficiency, throughput, relay, packets delay compared to other cooperative routing protocols.
