Abstract: The Alfvén waves are shown to be linearly coupled with finite-frequency convective cell modes in a nonuniform cold dusty magnetoplasma. The dynamics of weakly interacting finite-amplitude electromagnetic oscillations is governed by a pair of nonlinear equations. The latter admit dipolar vortices as possible stationary solutions. The present results can have relevance to the nonlinear electromagnetic wave propagation in a space environment such as cometary tails or interstellar clouds.
