Özet

Requirement needed to energy increases as a result of the changes occured in today's technologic situations. The low-rank coals of Turkey represent the country's major energy source with their relatively large geological reserves. Fossil fuels, at the present time, are the most required fuels and being estimated that they would preserve this situation in the future, although studies devoted to development as alternative of the renewable energy sources such as wind, solar and biogas resume rapidly. Thus, many research methods are required to determine the situations of the coal seams underground. In the previous years, by prectising their different physical properties because of their formation in order to be determined the coal layers, researches with the different geophysical methods such as seismic, electrical resistivity and gravity were made. But, it is possible to be acquired the needed high-definition underground-sections with the development of the geophysical measuring sets and methods in today's technology. The depths including coal seams near the surface and thicknesses can be determined with the GPR method which can collect data quite rapid to the other geophysical methods relatively and providing with high-resolution underground section. It can be provided information quickly and reliably with the Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) method about the structural elements such as faulting, translation and kinking by forming sterograms with the different measurement techniques that are used.
