Hi Louis,
I think you want to use lbLabelStrings:
http://www.ncl.ucar.edu/Document/Graphics/Resources/lb.shtml#lbLabelStrings

Note that you need to set cnExplicitLabelBarLabelsOn = True to use
lbLabelStrings:

http://www.ncl.ucar.edu/Document/Graphics/Resources/cn.shtml#cnExplicitLabelBarLabelsOn

To get the symbol in text in NCL, one way to do it is to use
superscript via text function codes with the letter o. For instance:
"10~S~o~N~C" will give you: 10C

The other way is to locate a symbol in a font table and change to that
font using function codes.
Good luck,
Adam
