The problem of estimating the regularization parameter for source localization in sparse-regularization framework is considered in this paper. We employ the distribution about every entry of the square of the Frobenius norm of noise to obtain a larger and more appropriate regularization parameter. The paper analyzes the reason that we can not simply set it equal to the square of the Frobenius norm of noise and presents the estimation in two practical cases: one works without taking singular value decomposition (SVD) of sensor outputs; the other works after that pretreatment for large data quantity. The simulation results demonstrate that the proposed method has many advantages, including enhancing resolution, effectively suppressing spurious peaks, improving robustness to noise, as well as increasing the number of resolvable sources.
