What is snow?

Snow is a form of precipitation, usually in the form of white flakes, which are small crystals of ice. Also called snow is the continuous mass of these sediments, which covers the ground, usually in winter.

Fallen snowfall also has a white color and due to this reflects the sunlight, and its heat goes to the melting of the snow, as a result of which the surrounding temperature becomes colder.

Snow is a granular, granular substance, as it consists of small particles of ice. It is soft and malleable material, if not compacted under external influence (wind, rain). Formed in clouds, ice crystals, falling to the ground, grow as a result of condensation and form six-pointed crystalline forms - snowflakes. From the article Where does the snow come from, you will know where and how snowflakes are formed.

The snowfall process is snowfall. After the snow falls to the ground, it is initially powdery, fluffy, but later, after passing through the cycles of melting and freezing, it becomes heavy and granular, and later turns into dense ice.However, under the influence of temperature, it may not reach this state and melt. You can read more about snow in the article What is it: snow.

Under the influence of wind, snow can form sediment — drifts, the depth of which can be several meters, as well as whole snow plates that form an avalanche on steep mountain slopes.
