In this paper we have shown that by taking advantage of the acoustic particle velocity, in addition to the acoustic pressure, multichannel reception can be accomplished in underwater channels. Theoretical formulation and Monte Carlo simulations are provided for a vector sensor equalizer that measures the pressure and the velocity at a single point in space. These results demonstrate the usefulness of a compact vector sensor as a multichannel equalizer.
