Dear Leyla,

The only paper I am aware of that adresses this subject is the following:

Brabyn, M., R.V.C. Frew.  1994.  New Zealand herd stranding sites do not
relate to geomagnetic topography.  Marine Mammal Science 10(2):195-207.  

If you look up this paper, you might be able to find other sources in the
references section.

Good luck!
