Canonical semiclassical methods can be used to develop an intuitive definition of tunneling time through potential barriers. An application to atomic ionization is given here, considering both static and time-dependent electric fields. The results allow one to analyze different theoretical constructions proposed recently to evaluate ionization experiments based on attoclocks. They also suggest new proposals of determining tunneling times, for instance through the behavior of fluctuations.
