Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) have found different applications with its flexibility and efficiency. Every different application has its own needs and changes with respect to that of the usage or transmission of data packets. We need to learn about most of the different congestion problems when we deal with different applications. In this paper, an attempt is made to study some congestion schemes in WSN, which in turn infer the reader about the causes for congestions and method to overcome the same.
