We present VLT-UVES echelle spectroscopy of the HI and C IV absorption in the spatially- extended Lyemission around two high-redshift radio galaxies 0200+015 (z=2.23) and 0943- 242 (z=2.92). The absorbers in 0943-242 exhibit little additional struct ure compared with previous low- resolution spectroscopy and the main absorber is still consistent with HI column density of ∼ 10 19 cm 2 . This is consistent with a picture in which the absorbing gas has low density and low metallicity and is… CONTINUE READING
