Glacial sediment and outwash are common surface materials in Alaska, and they usually contain significant amounts of iron-bearing minerals. Surface and subsurface waters on and in these sediments have been observed to contain iron, and in places, some parts of the Fairbanks area for example, iron is abundant enough to restrict water usage. Atomic absorption spectrophotometric measurements for total iron were made on 69 samples of water from 8 different environments in an outwash fan build by meltwater streams from the retreating Norris Glacier on granodiorite bedrock.
