[Chimera-users] calculate buried surface area

I have a dimer protein (say monomers 1,2). I have calculated the
electrostatic potential of monomer 1 using apbs. I used volume viewer to
display the electrostatic surface.

I see that the elect. surface of one monomer 1, touches the vdw surface of
monomer 2 at a contour level of 1. I want to calculate the total surface
area of monomer 2 that is exposed/buried within the elec. surface of
monomer 1. Is there any simple. If not suggestion how i can do it with a
python script perhaps.
