The earthquake near the coast of Japan (that caused the tsunami) happened on Friday 11.3.2011 at 5:46 UTC. Interestingly, the suns magnetic field made a massive jump approximately 24 hours before the earthquake. Could that have had a strong enough influence on earths tectonics to cause the quake?

Update: of course the magnetic fields are not strong enough to directly cause a quake. I'm thinking about the Butterfly Effect. A sudden change in the earths magnetic field might cause the magma flows at the boundary to the earths core to be defelcted, causing the tectonic plates to get stuck. Then tectonic energy would build up and finally be released in a quake. The question now is if the stored tectonic energy of 24 hours can cause a 8.8 quake...
