Abstract / Description:The XQ-100 survey provides optical and near-infrared coverage of 36 blindly selected, intervening damped Lyman α systems (DLAs) at 2 < zabs < 4, simultaneously covering the Mg II doublet at λλ2796, 2803Å, and the Ly α transition. Using the XQ-100 DLA sample, we investigate the completeness of selecting DLA absorbers based on their Mg II rest-frame equivalent width (W0^{2796}) at these redshifts. Of the 29 DLAs with clean Mg
