Figure 5.6: Storm deposit composed of fragments of marine organisms including fire coral and red calcareous algae. Many of these organisms were already dead and part of the sediment deposited on the sea floor, but waves from the typhoon eroded the fragments and redeposited them as a new sediment layer during the storm. The large clast sizes, and absence of fine-grained sediments, records how high the energy was during the storm.
