Uniformitarianism is the theory that changes in the earth's crust during geological history have resulted from the action of continuous and uniform processes
Catastrophism is the theory that changes in the earth's crust during geological history gave resulted chiefly form sudden violent and unusual events
James Hulton and Charles Lyell both played big roles in discovering Uniformitarianism in the 1800s
Georgis Cuvier was responsible for coming up with Catastrophism in the early 1900th century
We believe uniformitarianism is the theory that correlates with Plate Tectonics because they both result from continuous and uniform processes.
