Goshtasb anticline is situated in southeast of Shiraz. The dimension of this anticline is about 54 km length and maximum width of 7 km in the level of the Asemari–Jahrum carbonates exposure. The general trend of the structure is NW-SE which swings to an E-W trend in its eastern plunge possibly offsetted by branches of the Sarvestan fault. The northern flank of the anticline is steeply dipping to overturned whereas the southern flanks dips about 25-35, and therefore the anticline shows a distinct asymmetry to northeast in surface. In this research we show that this geometry is a result of activation of intermediate detachment levels in the stratigraphy succession specially Triassic evaporates of the Dashtak Formation, and the surface culminations of this anticline are merged together at depth to form a single structure (the Mozaffari anticline) in the Dehram level below the Dashtak Formation. In this research, an integration of field survey and available subsurface combined with modern structural ideas have been used to study of the geometry of the Dehram horizon. For this purpose, 6 geological cross sections with the total length of 147 km and one 51-km-long longitudinal section have been constructed. Also an underground contour map of the Dehram horizon is produced using structural cross sections. According to this map, the areal and vertical closure of the Goshtasb anticline is 11.5X47 km² and 2000 m, respectively.
