Névé is a young, granular type of snow which has been partially melted, refrozen and compacted. This type of snow is associated with glacier formation through the process of nivation. Névé that survives a full season of ablation is referred to as firn, which is both older and slightly denser. Firn becomes glacial ice - the long-lived, compacted ice that glaciers are composed of. Névé is annually observed in skiing slopes, and is generally disliked as a falling place.
Additional recommended knowledge
Névé has a minimum density of 500 kg/m³.
Névé can also refer to the alpine region in which snowfall accumulates, becomes névé, and feeds a glacier.
