Oxygen isotopic composition, crystal types and the degree of riming of falling snow particles were simultaneously observed in order to determine the possible causes of short-term variation of the δl8O value together with the formation process of snow in clouds. The results obtained are summarized as follows: (1) Whenever the type and/or degree or riming of snow crystals changed, the δI80 value of falling snow changed. (2) Short-term variation of the δl8O value in each case indicated that riming has two opposite effects on the δl80 value of snow crystals, i.e., the δl8O value increased (or decreased) by riming. (3) There was good correlation between the maximum precipitation intensity and the range of variation in the δl8O value of snow particles from snow bands. (4) The short-term variations of the δl8O values are not correlated to the surface air temperature and the precipitation intensity.DOI: 10.1111/j.1600-0889.1986.tb00260.x
