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.[1] Some close up images of the rim show old glaciers along the walls of smaller craters. Some glaciers are called lobate debris aprons.[2]
