How are fiber optic cables affected with time?

Does anyone know of some good references regarding how fiber optics are effected while aging in the field? What determines the life span of a fiber installation? Specifically, what causes the signal quality to degrade, and how quickly does it degrade. (That is, how does the attenuation across the line change with time). I'm having a hard time finding any good reference material, It would be great if anyone was aware of something.

Thanks
