Abstract

We present results from a Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope (WSRT) survey for HI 21 cm absorption in 62 MgII-selected absorption systems, among which we identify three now HI 21cm absorbers. We use the redshift evolution of the number density of MgII-absorbers and the Hi detection rate to estimate Omega(HI)(z = 0.6) = 0.0015.
