A meniscus is generally the interface between two immiscible fluids such as air and water or water and oil, which can either be either concave or convex. The word comes from Latin and indicates a curved object. Different liquids can have different menisci. Water for example has a concave meniscus while mercury has a convex meniscus.
I hope this helps.
