New regional seismic-stratigraphic analysis of shelf-margin delta geomorpology at three locations in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico support the Hughes et al. (1981) view that sea-level elevation during the last glacial maximum (as opposed to the magnitude of eustatic rise since the last glacial maximum) was ~90 m below present-day sea level provided that the northeastern sector of the Gulf of Mexico has experienced only isostatic uplift since the last glacial maximum.
