As with other Korean scientific endeavors, the politically astute, intimate involvement of the government, academic, and private sector groups in all facets of the planning leads both to concrete results and general long-term programmatic stability, which are critical to the success of a project as vast and as complex as the Yellow Sea Experiment. The emphasis on the uniqueness of the Yellow Sea as a fullscale test facility to examine various oceanographic problems and models should attract workers from the international community not specifically interested in the geographic location of the Yellow Sea. The fact that such a multinational project is being contemplated seriously in an area associated with bitter local enmities and with large standing armies technically at war certainly is an indication of the value of marine research as a benefit to all nations.

This article summarizes observations and opinions of many of the

participants of MHDS'91, the International Symposium on
Superconducting Magnetohydrodynamic Ship Propulsion, held in Kobe,
Japan, 28-31 October 1991. As the most significant development within

the topic area is the near-completion of the magnetohydrodynamic
(MHD) experimental ship YAMATO-1, with the sponsorship of the Japan
Ship and Ocean Foundation, a large portion of this article is devoted to a

description of YAMATO-1. International activities in superconducting
MHD propulsion are also updated. The author also provides his personal

assessment of the state-of-the-art of the technology.
