2.5 Conservative plate boundaries and transform faults
At a compressional plate boundary the plates are moving together.
Example: Indian and Eurasian Plate - formed the HIMALAYAS
Divergent boundaries are responsible in part for driving the motion of the

The point where two or more plates meet is known as a plate boundary.
Types of plate boundaries
The third type of plate boundary is called a conservative or transform
at a destructive plate boundary where one plate plunges below another.
At such a margin, the lower plate is not consumed but, together with the
convergent, divergent and conservative.
