The molcular dynamics study of the granular gas cluster systems during the coarsening process was investigated. The scaling exponent for the evaporation of electromagnetically excited clusters was measured during coarsening. The transition from three- to two-dimension character of motion of the gas system was related to the change in the scaling component.
