Daily Overview
The Sittaung River shifts course over time as it empties into the Gulf of Martaban in southern Myanmar. This shifting is partially caused by a tidal bore at the mouth of the river — a strong current that pushes back against the river, temporarily reversing its flow. The Sittaung discharges an average of 12 cubic miles (50 cubic kilometers of water per year.
