To fully understand the ocean environment requires sensing the full water column. Utilizing a depth adjustment system on an underwater sensor network provides this while also improving global sensing and communications. This paper presents a depth adjustment system for waters of up to 50m deep that connects to the AquaNode sensor network. We performed experiments characterizing the system and demonstrating its functionality. We discuss the application of this device in improving acoustic communication
