IT is well known that the recent advances in satellite communication and mobile communication technologies are not paralleled with same developments for digital underwater acoustic communication systems. In particular recent literature on underwater acoustic communications [1]–[21] deal extensively with the challenges in high speed underwater acoustic communications (see also chapter one of this book). However, although high speed underwater acoustic communication techniques for vertical channels in deep water environments are well investigated, there is no extensive studies on the horizontal channel case and the limitation of the multipath effects in this case. This is because in the horizontal channel case, the communication rate is low and error bit rate is high which add further complexity and challenge to apply the same vertical communication techniques to this case.
