Default interpolate and clip at a defined surface

WeTo is on a distinguished road

I want to visualize the result of flow velocity measurements in a flume with an obstacle.
We measured the velocities at 4 cross sections (x1,x2,x3,x4) and some 20-50 velocity points per section (Y-Z-rasterwise). Additionally, the water surface was measured with higher resolution (at 8 points). Now I want to interpolate the measurements to a finer mesh inside of the waterbody, i.e. the water surface should be the upper border.
By now it looks best with a 2D-Delaunay Filter for the surface and a 3D-Delaunay for the velocities - but I didn't find a way to clip (or whatever: define a query, calculation...) the volume to the surface. Example data is attached.

Does anybody of you know a way to do this in ParaView? Or would you recommend to do the interpolation with another programm (e.g. R)?


(I know the experimental setup is everything else than very intelligent, I can't change it anymore . Anyhow, the solution would be interesting.)
