is seeded by subwavelength instabilities that form at unstable wave phases ( Andreassen et al. 1998 ). Current weather and climate models typically run at horizontal gridpoint resolutions of ~10–100 km, approaching a so-called gray zone (e.g., Vosper et al. 2016 ) where long-wavelength gravity waves are resolved explicitly, but the net drag effects of smaller-scale waves on the resolved flow require parameterization ( Kim et al. 2003 ). Despite decades of research, vigorous debate persists about
