The Ussuri River is a river in the east of Northeast China and south of the Russian Far East. It can be seen flowing South-North between mountain ridges in the right half of this orthorectified image.

It rises in the Sikhote-Alin range, flowing north, forming part of the Sino-Russian border based on the Sino-Russian Convention of Peking in 1860, until it joins the Amur River at Khabarovsk. Here, Russian lands lie east of the river, while those of China lie to the west.

The river is approximately 897 km (557 miles) in length. The area of the Ussuri basin is 193,000 km² (74,516 mi²). Its waters come from rain (60%), snow (30-35%) and subterranean springs. Average discharge is 1,150 m³/s, elevation – 1,682 m.
