Magnetic susceptibility measurements are reported for 9 sites along Quaternary cliffs in the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska. These unconsolidated deposits are sufficiently magnetic to explain short-wavelength, low-amplitude aeromagnetic anomalies that correspond spatially with these cliffs. Maps, tables, and figures document this conclusion. The report is linked to photographs of the Quaternary deposits at the measurement sites.
