Sorry, no etymologies found.
Table 10.4 appears to indicate a positive correlation between northerliness and naturalness (indicated by the index, I).
I simply give you that to illustrate the fact that it is not a question of remoteness nor northerliness, but a question of the influence of the warm air currents coming in from the Pacific Ocean and modifying the climate of that whole section.
In general there is an inverse correlation between the extent of drainage and northerliness.
