Quenisset Crater is an impact crater in the Ismenius Lacus quadrangle on Mars at 34.6° N and 319.4° W. and is 138.0 km in diameter. Its name was approved in 1973, and it was named after Ferdinand Quénisset. Some close up images of the rim show old glaciers along the walls of smaller craters. Some glaciers are called lobate debris aprons.
