The aim of this paper is to present a model for the throughput of the 1-persistent CSMA protocol in underwater networks, where the typically large propagation delay with respect to the packet transmission time requires to take into account the spatial distribution of the nodes. Our model is developed based on the analysis carried out in [1] for the non-persistent CSMA protocol. Our results show that the 1-persistent CSMA model developed by Tobagi and Kleinrock is still valid as an
more » ... as an approximation, with a few small adjustments, even though it considers an equal propagation delay for all pairs of nodes in the network. The proposed model is validated against simulation results based on the network simulator OMNeT++.
