Hi Nancy,
This is not a Chimera question (or answer)... my only suggestions are (a) asking authors of papers who did similar calculations, or (b) google or other internet search.  For example, by googling "download ice structure" I get several links such as 

However, I would guess that these are bulk structures rather than surface. You might have to start out with bulk structure and let the simulation rearrange the surface depending on what else is in the simulation (again, NOT with Chimera, as it does not do simulations).
