The conditions favourable for groundwater availability in hard rock regions are adequate weathered depth and fractures. In this paper, the relationship between these conditions and topographic characteristics in south western Nigeria is examined. There is substantial spatial variation in characteristics, but on average the field results indicate good prospects for groundwater in the crystalline rock terrains of south western Nigeria.
