For example, in underwater sensor networks, RF signals can quickly fade away after 1 meter of distance. In underground mine exploration systems, most times the communication devices cannot reach each other through RF channels if they are more than 10 meters away. In those applications, non-RF wireless media, such as magnetic or acoustic channels, may play more important roles due to their strong penetration capability in water/ground environments)
