New Russian stamp
So this is my first post from the US.
Our post issued 2 stamps devoted to the 175th anniversary of installation Hydrometeorogical service in Russia . I myself really like stamps devoted to geography and I remember the Geography classes in schlool when we studied some parts of Hydrometeorology, it was rather interesting. Nobody can overvalue this service even if doesn't work so well ;) I was lucky to get these stamps in Russia. So here is the description:

The Federal Agency on Hydrometeorology and Environmental renders the state services in field of environment monitoring, its pollution, gives the forecast of environmental conditions on all territory of the Russian Federation. In 1834, at the initiative of Adolf Jakovlevich Kupfer, Nikolay I put basis of constant geophysical network with law «About establishment of magnetic and meteorological supervision». Stamp represents portrait of A.J. Kupfer, the academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the first head of Hydrometeorological service of Russia, and also meteorological station МК-14.
