We report the detection of a significant clustering signal on scales ∆v < ∼ 300 km s, for a sample of 71 C IV absorbers. This result confirms previous findings and, together with data at lower column density, it points to a trend of decreasing clustering amplitude with decreasing column density, analogous to that observed for Lyα lines. 1 Observations and… CONTINUE READING
