Hans Henrik Reusch (5 September 1852 – 1922), Norwegian geologist, was born at Bergen. He was educated at Christiania, Leipzig and Heidelberg, and graduated Ph.D. at Christiania in 1883.

He joined the Geological Survey of Norway in 1875, and became Director in 1888. He is distinguished for his research on the crystalline schists and the Palaeozoic rocks of Norway. He discovered Silurian fossils in the highly altered rocks of the Bergen region; and in 1891 he called attention to a Palaeozoic conglomerate of glacial origin in the Varanger Fjord, a view confirmed by Mr A. Strahan in 1896, who found glacial striations on the rocks beneath the ancient boulder-bed. Reusch has likewise thrown light on the later geological periods, on the Pleistocene glacial phenomena and on the sculpturing of the scenery of Norway. Among his separate publications were Silur fossiler og pressede Konglomerater (1882) and Det nordlige Norges Geologi (1891).
