WHAT DOES GRAUPEL MEAN IN ENGLISH?
Graupel refers to precipitation that forms when supercooled droplets of water are collected and freeze on a falling snowflake, forming a 2–5 mm ball of rime. Strictly speaking, graupel is not the same as hail or ice pellets. While graupel is sometimes referred to as small hail, the World Meteorological Organization defines small hail as snow pellets encapsulated by ice, a precipitation halfway between graupel and hail. The term graupel is the German word for the described meteorological phenomenon. Its METAR code is GS.

Microphysics of Clouds and Precipitation
Rimed ice crystals and graupel are formed in clouds which contain both ice
crystals and supercooled drops. Field studies have shown that in such clouds
both snow crystals and frozen drops may serve as embryos for graupel formation.
