Abstract

The increase in the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events is considered one of the evidences and one of the most immediate effects of climate change on our planet. Such changes have a direct impact on human health. The study of the correlation between meteorological parameters and the occurrence of some diseases makes it possible to develop systems of resilience and adaptation to climate change, such as the development of health alert systems when the detection of an extreme weather event occurs. In this project, the objective is to study the correlation between extreme variations of meteorological parameters and hospitalizations and deaths associated with diseases of the circulatory system, through the analysis of meteorological and health databases in the city of Campinas. The KDD (Knowledge Discovery in Databases) model will be used as a data science guideline.
