We study reconnection phenomena in magnetohydrodynamics on the basis of a magnetohydrodynamic version of the Eulerian-Lagrangian analysis. We find that the methods are useful in capturing time scales associated with magnetic reconnection both in two and three dimensions. Visualizations show that the determinants of the Jacobian determinants of the diffusive labels are small where active reconnection takes place. The resetting of the diffusive labels extracts a short time scale during reconnection.
