A large (30–40 m), rapid (≪1 m.y.), earliest Maastrichtian sea-level drop inferred from New Jersey sequence stratigraphic records correlates with synchronous δ18O increases in deep-water benthic and low-latitude surface-dwelling planktonic foraminifera. The coincidence of these events argues for the development of a moderate-sized ice sheet during the early Maastrichtian.
