Discussed (final revised paper)

Short summary
Sediments and landforms related to Typhoon Haiyan were documented for coastal settings on the Philippines. Sand sheets are restricted to coasts with strong inundation, while washover fans due to overtopping waves were more abundant. Wave-generated coral ridges are reported from an intertidal reef platform. As generated by an exceptional storm, documented signatures like the limited landward extent of sand sheets may potentially help to distinguish storm and tsunami in the geological record.
