Abstract: An almost everywhere convergence theorem for topologically ergodic measures stated by Furstenberg for homeomorphisms is extended to Markov operators on $ C(X)$ with compact Hausdörff state space. A structure theorem for topologically ergodic measures is obtained in the compact metric case again in the more general setting of Markov operators.
