Underwater Wireless Sensor Networks (UWSNs) are different in many aspects as compared to terrestrial sensor networks. Other than long propagation delays and high error probability, continuous node movement makes it hard to manage the location information of sensor nodes. Determining the location of every node is a major issue as nodes can move continuously with the water currents. In order to handle the problem of large propagation delays and unreliable link quality, many algorithms have been proposed and some of them provide good solutions for these issues, but continuous node movements still need attention. In order to handle the problem of node mobility, we proposed a Hop-by-Hop Dynamic Addressing Based (H2-DAB) routing protocol, where every node in the network will be assigned a routable address in a quick and efficient way without requiring an explicit configuration or any dimensional location information. It helps to provide an option where nodes can communicate without any centralized infrastructure, also a mechanism is available where nodes can come and leave the network without having any serious effect on the rest of the network. Simulation results show that H2-DAB can manage easily during the quick routing changes where node movements are very frequent yet require little or no overhead in order to complete its tasks.
