    Figure  10.  Conceptual model of mechanisms of coarse-grained sand formation caused by storm impacts within the Xincun Lagoon sequence (Modified from Maio et al., 2016). Conceptualized cross section of the tidal basin showing core locations, beach, and flood delta sands (a). Windblown waves generated by storms further increase the tide level and current speed, resulting in erosion of the flood delta, beach, and shoreface sand. Coarse-grained sand is suspended and transported into the tidal basin it is sorted and deposited on the tidal basin bottom bed (b). increased storm surged water within the tidal basin provides up the conditions for a strong current capable of transporting sand from the flood delta tidal beach down into the tidal basin (c, d).

    DateDocumented descriptionLandfall site
    1863On November 21st in 1863 CE, jufeng moved from east to south, buildings were razed.
    On November 27th in 1863 CE, jufeng moved from northwest to southeast, numerous houses were destroyed, thousands of people were drowned by the storm surge, which caused hazards that have never been seen before.
    1848On November 23rd in 1848 CE, a number of buildings and trees were demolished by extraordinarily strong winds.Dingan
    1839On December 7th–18th in 1839 CE, 6 storms and floods occurred continuously, allcrops were drowned and a large number of people lost their home, which contributed to a famine that led to the death of numerous people. In the next two years (1840 and 1841 CE), corps were destroyed again by frequent floods and drought, famine was the result.Dingan, Wenchang
