The Ulysses Fossae are a group of troughs in the Tharsis quadrangle of Mars at 10.06° north latitude and 123.07° west longitude. They were named after an albedo feature name.[1] The area contains pitted cones called Ulysses Colles[2] which were interpreted to be possible Martian equivalents to terrestrial cinder cones.[3]
