It (an example) crashed my browser (Pale Moon/Noscript).

Do you plan to try it? The examples I saw didn't look any more advanced than what I've seen from other sources. One would think pushing it to the cloud would give supercomputer-like results. Compare with:

This uses OpenVDB, which can encoded arbitrary data like temperature along with the pressure and velocity.

I suspect that having access to cloud storage is helpful but does not guarantee great source programming.

I think this is cloud based, you almost cannot buy AutoCad for your computer anymore as the lease options using the cloud are so much more affordable.

This example is tangential, but I see opportunity for improvement in the visualization.

The example would be windy.com. They display weather, but have switchable layers that utilize heat maps, animated particles and isolines.
