Microscopic vs. macroscopic chaos

I often see in the literature a distinction made between microscopic and macroscopic chaos but am yet to find an explanation of the latter. When thinking about microscopic chaos I tend to think we are talking about the local instabilities of particle-particle collisions, for example.

For the macroscopic case, are we just talking about the instability of a volume element/subset of phase space? Any references?

Thanks. I did stumble on this but clearly didn’t read attentively.
