Kodori

 

(also Kodor), a river in the Abkhazian ASSR. Length, 80 km; basin area, 2,030 sq km. The Kodori is formed by the confluence of the Sakeni and Gvandra rivers, which rise on the southwestern slopes of the Greater Caucasus. The Kodori flows through a narrow gorge. At a distance of 25 km from its mouth, it emerges into a lowland, forming a delta where it empties into the Black Sea. The river is fed by mixed sources (primarily rain). The average flow rate at a point 25 km from its mouth is 123 cu m per sec. The Kodori is used for floating timber.
