[SciPy-User] Calculate surface area and volume from intersection of volume and plane.

We have an old ArcGIS aml script that we are trying to replace. The original script takes the input from an ArcGIS TIN model (basically a 2D delaunay triangulation of irregular xy data points with z's defining the depth at each xy) and calculates the surface area and volume of the lake at different elevations (i.e. z cut planes) 

>From my googling it looks like I have options for the delaunay triangulation using scipy, matplotlib, cgal or mayavi. I'm not sure how to do the surface area and volume calculations at various z planes once I have the triangulation. I would appreciate any pointers.
