We substantiate the possibility of using analytic hierarchy process to assess the ecosystem services of the Kyiv reservoir for the period from 1988 to 2013, combined with interpreted remote sensing imagery and ground-based observations (hydrophysical, hydrochemical, and hydrobiological parameters). A criterial evaluation of the reservoir’s physiognomic and analytical characteristics is given and the reservoir’s state is analyzed through the calculation of their priorities from the positions of maintaining biological diversity and using it for human needs (municipal water supply and hydropower production).
