Long-term sea level peaked at T50 meters during the Cretaceous, implying that ocean-crust production rates were much lower than previously inferred. Sea level. magnitudes of sea-level change in this chart follow the estimation of Haq and Schutter () and Hardenbol et al. (). However, there is little consensus on the range of sea-level changes, though most believe that the sea-level position during most of the Phanerozoic was within ± meters of the present-day level.
