A relatively low level of solid material suspended in the coffee beverage. A result of fine particles of bean fiber and insoluble proteins present in imperceptible amounts. Lacks body or substance and is insufficiently concentrated and roasted.
Not close; not crowded; not filling the space; not having the individuals of which the thing is composed in a close or compact state; hence, not abundant; as, the trees of a forest are thin; the corn or grass is thin.
Fundamentals are weak relative to harmonics. Note that the fundamental frequencies of many instruments are not very low. For example, violin fundamentals are around 200 to 1,000 Hz. So if the 300 Hz area is weak, the violin may sound thin - even if the violin mic's response goes down to 40 Hz.
(aka: "skinny") when the ball is contacted with the leading edge instead of the face of the club producing a low trajectory shot with less than the usual amount of spin. Example: "He hit a good drive, but then hit his wedge thin and over the green."
Often a stamp which has been improperly hinged will be damaged when the hinge is removed. A layer of paper fibers under the hinge gum is torn away leaving the paper of the stamp thin in the area. Such thins are defects and should be mentioned when describing a stamp. The effect on value will depend on the size of the thin.
section Petrologists (thoes who study rock) use thin sections to study the mineralogy of rocks. A thin section is a microscopic glass slide to which a flat slice of rock is attached and ground to 30 microns thick (three hundredths of a millimeter). At this thickness, light can pass through the rock, allowing the properties of the minerals to be studied using polarised and the plane polarised light.
As used in aviation weather observations, descriptive of a sky cover that is predominantly transparent. According to the summation principle, at any level, if the ratio of the transparent sky cover to the total sky cover (opaque plus transparent) is one-half or more, then the cloud layer at that level must be classified as "thin." It is denoted by the symbol "âˆ’" preceding the appropriate sky cover symbol.
