Field recordings for "Two Lakes" were made around Termeil and Meroo Lakes. These types of lakes are referred to as Intermittently Closed and Open Lakes and Lagoons (ICOLL). ICOLLs are saline water bodies that have intermittent connection to the ocean with an accumulation of sand blocking water flow from the lake into the ocean. They are fragile ecosystems with the lake system and surrounding wetlands strongly influenced by tidal exchanges (or lack thereof) with the ocean. For more information on ICOLLs and their conservation and management, visit the Wetlandlink website
This short recording was taken from within the grasses on the dunes seperating Meroo Lake and the ocean. The constant rumble of the shoreline waves and windblown vegetation dominate this recording.
