The National Science Foundation under Grants ATM-9820233 and ATM-0215358 provided partial support for this research. I thank Dennis Lamb for fruitful discussions on moist thermodynamics and Raymond G. Najjar for bringing the work of Rainer Feistel to my attention. Reviewer Rick Salmon graciously provided Casimir C2 after noting a deficiency in my original formulation.
