Özet:In earth sciences research in recent years, one of the shallow geophysical applications used for detailed and rapid determination of underground information from shallow depths is ground penetrating radar (GPR). In this study, GPR studies were completed along with active faults in Simav and surroundings, with measurements perpendicular to the fault strike on a total of 5 profiles at 3 different locations determined by previous field studies. The results were an attempt to determine the amounts of displacement in a vertical direction on active faults around Simav. According to the studies, in the area of the first GPR profile there are offsets of 30 to 80 cm, in the area of the second GPR profile there are offsets of 50 to 70 cm and in the area of the third GPR profile there are offsets of 40 cm. All these offset data indicate the young vertical offset data of the Simav Fault, with some strike-slip component with mainly normal fault characteristics. All those data forms the background for paleoseismology studies with data and interpretations of certain accuracy only determinable with paleoseismology studies.
