Abstract: This paper works on literature co-cited analysis concerning the impacts of land use on climate change based on knowledge visualization tool. The main knowledge clusters and research hot points are concluded. The cluster of climate change's impacts on carbon cycle and soil organic carbon, as well as the relevant research topics, is analyzed. Furthermore, the driving factors and relevant countermeasures influencing global carbon balance under the background of climate change are presented. Using the paradigm in this paper, the integration of knowledge clusters, research topics and driving forces, as well as countermeasures, could be explicitly analyzed towards climate change induced land use change. Besides, it could offer an objective literature foundation for scientific research.

Key words: climate change, land use, TUPU analysis
