There where North Sea and River Schelde come together, where the estuary is 6 km wide a lot of (about 25 in this recording) seagoing ships travel to there destination in the night.

The ship engines create a deep humming sound around the water. Sometimes the deep rumble drown down the sound of the waves of the low tide sea with there 15 cm low waves.
All these ships diesel engines sounds as far thunder.
This recording is not Equalized. It is what I recorded.

The SW 3 bft wind is coming from the sea, directly from the esuary.

Here some live data from http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais/ ;
00.00 min. on 3km coming from the right 16 kmh cargo 1, other ships 4 km away at the other side of the water.
13.00 min. 0.3km was coming from the left 25 kmh cargo 2
14.00 min. 0.3km was coming from right 16 kmh cargo 1
24.00 min. 0.5km was coming from left 24 kmh tanker 3

wind SW 2bft
34.50 1.3 km coming from right 18 kmh cargo 4

Please note that only very good speakers / headphones with a very extended bass response will do this recording real justice.
