Abstract: To model the colors of high redshift quasars we have considered a single power law distribution for the column densities of the absorbers. Taking low resolution spectra published by Sargent, Steidel, and Boksenberg (1989) there is a unique solution for the slope and the normalization of the distribution, that matches simultaneously the line and continuum absorption. The slope of the distribution matches that derived from high resolution absorption studies, but we find a higher normalization.
