I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'deep breath?' is the definition.
The answer and definition can be both types of natural phenomena as well as being singular nouns.
Perhaps they are linked in a way I don't understand?

'deep breath?' is the wordplay.
'deep' becomes 'sea' (I've seen this before).
'breath?' becomes 'breeze' (breath is a kind of breeze).
'sea'+'breeze'='SEA-BREEZE'

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for sea breeze that I've seen before include "Maritime wind" , "Doctor" , "Gentle coastal wind" , "Gentle wind from the ocean" , "Vodka-based cocktail" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph and The Independent.
