Daryabar Fossa is an east-west trending trough on Saturn's moon Enceladus. Daryabar Fossa was first seen in Voyager 2 images, though a small section was see at much higher resolution by Cassini. It is centered at 9.7° North Latitude, 359.1° West Longitude and is approximately 201 kilometers long. Based on limb profiles of Voyager 2 images, Daryabar Fossa was determined to be a 400-meter deep and 4 kilometers wide (Kargel and Pozio 1996). Daryabar Fossa runs perpendicular to the scarp Isbanir Fossa and is right-laterally offset 15–20 km by the scarp, suggesting Isbanir is a strike-slip or transform fault (Rothery 1999).
