In this paper, we compare this random sampling approach to more advanced pseudo-absence generation methods, such as environmental profiling and optimal background extent limitation, specifically for predicting desert locust breeding grounds in Africa.

During the 2021 monsoon season, the flood warning system was operational in India and Bangladesh, covering flood-prone regions around rivers with a total area of 287, 000 km2, home to more than 350M people.
Floods are among the most common and deadly natural disasters in the world, and flood warning systems have been shown to be effective in reducing harm.
In this work we present a novel family of hydrologic models, called HydroNets, which leverages river network structure.
Joint models are a common and important tool in the intersection of machine learning and the physical sciences, particularly in contexts where real-world measurements are scarce.
In this scenario sharing a low-rank component between the tasks translates to a shared spectral reflection of the water, which is a true underlying physical model.

We propose to build on these strengths and develop ML systems for timely and accurate riverine flood prediction.
We demonstrate the efficacy of our approach for the problem of discharge estimation using simulations.
