I have a question about "put sth at sth".
An alternative way of looking at the pause’s significance was to say that there had been a slowdown but not a big one. Most records, including one of the best known (kept by Britain’s Meteorological Office), do not include measurements from the Arctic, which has been warming faster than anywhere else in the world. Using satellite data to fill in the missing Arctic numbers, Kevin Cowtan of the University of York, in Britain, and Robert Way of the University of Ottawa, in Canada, put the overall rate of global warming at 0.12°C a decade between 1998 and 2012—not far from the 1990s rate. A study by NASA puts the “Arctic effect” over the same period somewhat lower, at 0.07°C a decade, but that is still not negligible.
On the last sentence, my teacher said it means "Nasa estimates the overall rate of global warming at 0.07°C considering the Arctic effect". I don't understand it since put an object at something means the subject calculates the object at something, and on the last sentence, it says "put the arctic effect at 0.07C." Then why does it mean the average global temperature is 0.07, not the arctic effect is 0.07? Please help me!
