Short summary
Block and boulder fields record catastrophic coastal flooding events and play a pivotal role in coastal hazard assessment. After Supertyphoon Haiyan on 8 Nov 2013 the transport of extremely large blocks of up to 180 t in E Samar (Philippines) was documented, indicating that hydrodynamic conditions induced by tropical cyclones, including infragravity waves, and resulting coarse-clast transport patterns may be comparable to tsunamis.
