Abstract: For elliptic parabolic operators with time dependent coefficients, bounded and measurable, the absolute continuity of the two caloric measures plus a Fatou theorem are shown to hold on the parabolic boundary of a smooth cylinder given a Carleson-type condition on the coefficients of the operators, and assuming one of the measures is a center doubling measure. Given a stronger Carleson condition, and no doubling assumption, another kind of Fatou theorem result holds. The method of proof follows that of Fefferman, Kenig and Pipher.
