Abstract: Let $ G= {\rm PSL}_2(\mathbb{F})$ where $ \mathbb{F}= \mathbb{R} , \mathbb{C}$, and consider the space $ Z=(\Gamma _1 \times \Gamma _2)\backslash (G\times G)$ where $ \Gamma _1<G$ is a co-compact lattice and $ \Gamma _2<G$ is a geometrically finite discrete Zariski dense subgroup. For a horospherical subgroup $ N$ of $ G$, we classify all ergodic, conservative, invariant Radon measures on $ Z$ for the diagonal $ N$-action.
