' magnetic pulses' and earthquakes

This caused my remaining synapse to fire.
For 2015, New Line Cinema, Village Roadshow, and Warner Brothers released the motion picture, ' SAN ANDREAS', written by Andre Fabrizio and Jeremy Passmore.
Actor Paul Giamatti played the character, Dr. Lawrence Hayes, Professor of Seismology, at California Institute of Technology ( CALTECH ), who, along with his colleague had come up with a hypothesis linking 'magnetic pulse rate' with earthquake occurrence.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The director of the film mentioned ' unproven theories' about earthquakes, and that seismologists at the University of California at Los Angeles ( UCLA )' Earth, Planetary & Earth Sciences college of Geophysics, had consulted on the film, as Cal Tech had consulted on the 1951 motion picture, 'The Day The Earth Stood Still' ( chalkboard calculations on both films represented respective, state-of-the-art mathematical models for their particular disciplines ).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you go the the UCLA website today, under Geophysics, you find that the university IS involved with 'magnetics' and magnetometers, however, those activities are limited to space-probes around the solar system, not Earth. There is no specific mention of 'magnetism' associated with any of their terrestrial seismological research.
