  • The gases are ionized, so their swirling, mixing turbulent motion forms electrical and magnetic fields known as magnetohydrodynamic flow, which in turn affects the polarization of radio waves.

  • Instead, the 17-year-old junior at the Classical Academy turned his attention to solving a key problem with an experimental drive system for military submarines called magnetohydrodynamic

  • "Fortunately, we had enough background in science that we realized it was really a pulsating magnetoplasmadynamic (some use the term 'magnetohydrodynamic') field, visible due to light-emitting plasma (and / or, simply ions) contouring the object's magnetic field."
