In this chapter, we introduce two prevailing UWA channel models, namely, the empirical UWA channel model and the statistical time-varying UWA channel model, to capture the features of RA-UAC systems from different aspects. In addition, the relationship between the coherence time and transmission distances is also explored to reveal the fundamental difference between the short-range UAC and the medium-long range UAC.
