Hydraotes Chaos is a broken up region in the Oxia Palus quadrangle of Mars, located at 0.8° North and 35.4° West. It is 417.5 km across and was named after a classical albedo feature name.[1] More information and more examples of chaos regions can be found at Martian chaos terrain. The area contains small conical edifices, called Hydraotes Colles,[2] which were interpreted as Martian equivalent of terrestrial cinder cones formed by volcanic activity.[3]
