We present the experimental results on electric and magnetic fields generated under breakdown and pre-breakdown modes of pulsed laser radiation propagation along atmospheric paths. It has been established that quasiperiodic electric and magnetic fields (105-106 Hz, duration of 10-100 ms) are generated during propagation of ms CO2 laser pulses in the atmosphere under breakdown and pre-breakdown modes. The strongest induced electric and magnetic fields are observed at the number of breakdown centers per unit path length NNh = 0.17 m-1. The connection of electric and magnetic fields arising around the ionization channel with the atmospheric parameters is shown.
