The recent surge of exploration activities over distal margins, with the acquisition of more and more high-quality and deep seismic data, has led to enhance concepts of the deformation and subsidence history of passive margins in general and sheared margins in particular. The French Guiana sheared margin is very narrow. The thinning of the upper crust is accommodated by few major faults relayed by well-expressed transfer zones, giving a general oblique trend to the margin.
