That noise expression that Michael mentioned looks cool. I'll have to explore that more.

I was going to suggest, you could just set two keyframes for your top and bottom y position, set them to ease in and out, then apply the expression loopOut("pingpong") to the layer. You can then adjust the period of the wave by changing the timing of the keyframes, and the amplitude by the spacial distance between the two.

That said, the nice thing about Michaels noise expression, is that if you have a number of floating objects, it will look like they are effected by a common turbulent force rather than animated independently.
