He explained why certain minerals tend to occur together while others are almost never associated with one another.
In the early 1900s, he heated powdered rock material until it melted. He allowed the molten material to cool down and observed the
minerals that formed in the rocks. He repeated this process with progressively lower temperatures and the results he got led him to the
now called Bowen’s reaction series. (Carlson, D. H., Plummer, C. C., Hammersley L., Physical Geology Earth Revealed 9th ed., 2011,
