Tropical Cyclone Report

Tropical Depression Seven

7 - 8 September 2002

Miles B. Lawrence
National Hurricane Center
30 November 2002

A tropical wave moved from Africa to the eastern Atlantic Ocean on September 1st, accompanied by a low-level circulation and a fairly-well organized area of deep convection. This convection soon dissipated and the wave was disorganized for the next several days while moving west-northwestward. On the 7th, it acquired enough organized convection to be identified as Tropical Depression Seven. But the depression was short-lived, as increasing vertical shear quickly caused its dissipation on the 8th, while it was located about 850 n mi southeast of Bermuda.
