The decoherence of wave packet in the Morse potential was investigated. The decoherence time for various initial states was calculated, and it was found that the larger the diameter of the phase-space orbit described by a wave packed was, the faster was the decoherence. A general decoherence scheme, which have a clear physical interpretation was obtained.
