        During and immediately after testing, undisturbed samples are stored in cold rooms in the temperature range of 8 degC to 12 degC. Disturbed samples are kept frost-free in Fugro’s warehouse, typically in a temperature range of 15 degC to 25 degC. After testing, long term storage is at a third party underground facility at a constant temperature of 14 degC.
