a river in Indonesia, the largest river on the island of Java. Approximately 540 km long, the river drains an area of about 17,000 sq km. It originates on the slopes of the Lawu and Merapi volcanoes and flows primarily through a wide and often marshy valley. In its lower course the river meanders sharply and empties into the Java Sea. High water occurs from October through May and causes heavy flooding. The Solo is navigable for 200 km; the lower course has been straightened and canalized. The river valley is densely populated and cultivated. The cities of Solo (former name Surakarta), Cepu, and Bojonegoro are on the Solo. In the period 1931–33 remains of Palaeonthropus (Solo man) were found on the riverbank at the village of Ngandong.
