Solution of the nonlinear MHD problem of plasma flow in an increasing dipolar magnetic field is obtained in the approximation of a strong field. The distributions of plasma velocity, displacement, and density are calculated. The situation when the magnetic dipole is ‘increased’ by rapid process of magnetic reconnection or current sheet rupture is illustrated. Possible applications are discussed in connection with plasma ejections from chromosphere in corona.
