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

'sound measures to take' is the definition.
I know nothing about this answer so I cannot tell whether it can be defined by this definition.

'obscure situations' is the wordplay.
'obscure' becomes 'fog' (synonyms).
'situations' becomes 'signals' (I can't justify this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).
'fog'+'signals'='FOG SIGNALS'

'in' is the link.

Can you help me to learn more?
