The logo of the Earth Sciences Institute

The Earth Sciences Institute was an organization designed for exploration and scientific discovery on Earth.

The A-6 excavation team which studied the debris from a Borg sphere found in the Arctic Circle in 2153 was from the Earth Sciences Institute. (ENT: "Regeneration")

The Earth Sciences Institute was never mentioned in dialogue. The name comes from an assignment patch worn by the A-6 excavation team.
The Science Council may be associated in some way with the Institute, since the A-6 team checked in with them. The Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 227) stated the ESI was a part of the Science Council and, additionally, the institute operated a research station near the Arctic Circle.
