the outset geostrophic and hydrostatic balance of the synoptic-scale flow. It is therefore not obvious that this theory can be applied to the interaction between a mesoscale resolved flow and mesoscale or submesoscale SGS GWs, which seems to be the most appropriate scenario for GW parameterizations in mesoscale-resolving models. In this setting, a modified WKB theory that allows for a mesoscale unbalanced large-scale flow would be most useful. Of related interest is that packets of small-scale GWs

1. Introduction The overarching objectives of the Deep Propagating Gravity Wave Experiment (DEEPWAVE; see appendix A for a list of key acronyms used in this paper) were to observe, model, understand, and predict the deep vertical propagation of internal gravity waves from the troposphere to the lower thermosphere and to study their impacts on the atmospheric momentum and energy budget ( Fritts et al. 2016 ). Convection, fronts, flow over mountains, and spontaneous adjustments occurring at the
