A wavelength-adaptation underwater optical wireless sensor network (UOWSN) is proposed for marine environment development and seafloor resources observa-tion. The method of LED-based visible light communication (VLC) is employed for creating the wireless network among the sensor nodes, and each sensor node is a VLC transceiver. The LED is incoherent source, it can neither damage the ma-rine creatures like as a coherent laser source nor lose the inherent high speediness of light radiation yet. The wavelength-adaptation technique is used to adaptive control seawater turbidity and marine environment which both have spatiotem-poral change. The effectiveness of proposed UOWSN is demonstrated in the ex-periments of underwater one-to-one image transmissions.
