I have read they requirements and search they internet I am not finding much info on this and feel lost can someone help me or steer me they right way. Thanks. Describe the three branches and three systems of geology.

· Respond to the following: According to the Nebular Theory, how did the solar system
develop? How is uniformitarianism related to the evolution of Earth and the solar system?

I am really only aware of categorizing the basic two branches of Geology: Physical Geology and Historical Geology. The third could Engineering/Environmental Geology I would think

Physical Geology is the study where we describe the Earth, its materials (rocks and minerals as well as water and soil), motions and physical processes (plate tectonics, earthquakes, mass wasting, physical oceanography, hydrologic cycle) and how we describe these things (structural geology, ...

Without using Bowen's Reaction Series, how might you determine the order of crystallization of minerals in an individual rock sample?

The size of crystals in igneous rocks is generally a function of the rate of cooling. However, within the same rock crystal size does not necessarily reflect the order of crystallization for individual minerals. Without using Bowen's Reaction Series, how might you determine the order of crystallization of minerals in an individual rock sample? (Hint: Think about the texture).
