The time dependent neutrino oscillation signals due to the passage of a shock wave through the supernovae are analyzed for the case of three active neutrinos and also for the case that there are two additional sterile neutrinos. I re-examine the Landau-Zenner formula, which gives the level crossing probability at a MSW resonance, probing the deviations with specific application to the supernova shock wave. I use these results to examine phase effects which could be present due to multiple resonance crossings at the forward and reverse shocks.
