Typhoons have a significant effect on the marine depositional environment and depositional process. In this paper, we used the high-resolution Chirp sonar sub-bottom profiler and radioisotope detection techniques to examine the storm-deposited layer formed in the seawater near the path of Typhoon Saola along the coast of Fujian, China. The thickness of the typhoon-deposited layer acquired using these two methods was 10–25?cm. The thickness, sediment grain size, and d13C values of the deposited sedimentary layer indicated that it was mainly matter from the re-suspension and redistribution of seafloor sediments. The particle sizes of the sediments in the storm-deposited layer became coarser, indicating that the fine-grade compositions spread over a wider range out of the coastal zone.
