This study was carried out to determine the anisotropic properties of parts of the Southwestern Basement Complex of Nigeria in Ijebu Igbo, which is underlain by migmatite gneiss and older granites.

The surface water level (SWL) of 107 hand-dug wells were measured to determine the groundwater flow direction of the area. Thirty Azimuthal Resistivity Survey (ARS) were investigated along four azimuths; 0°, 45°, 90°, and 135° to determine the electrical anisotropy, the trend of fractures and their behavioural pattern with depth. The quantitative interpretation of the Radial Vertical Electrical Sounding (RVES) curves involved the use of partial curve matching, and computer iteration using WINRESIST program ...
